Hidden Villa: chickens, pigs and cows

My son adjusted composition a little by adding some pencil circles here and there in my sketchbook - and though he was rebuked, I think it added some thing to some of the pages ;)

We had a wonderful little trip - lots of leaves to look at, lots of places to run and jump :) chickens were easy to sketch since my companion was occupied with chasing them to feed some corn that he found on the floor. We saw one egg being laid! And met two kittens (they ran away too quickly).

I used Rotring artpen (shortened to make it more portable) and KOH-I-NOOR drawing ink - sepia, waterproof. It has a little bit of smell when I fill the pen (I am using refillable Piston-Fill Converter) but is almost gone when I actually draw - and I do have a tendency to get closer and closer to the paper if I loose a track of time sometimes ;) Not with these sketches though :)
